We're all going to do a really good job pretending like I haven't stopped blogging and there have been regular updates. Got it!

I've been sewing up a storm in preparation for the Christmas rush. A lot of that sewing takes place in the evening while watching T.V.. with Joe. There's always a little pile of strings left on the end table, and I've been know to lose NEEDLES! So, I created this little armrest trashcan, pin cushion thingy. I'm also going to add a little elastic strap for my scissors. Unfortunately, I only had black elastic, so I'll have to wait until I get to the store.

It's simply a fabric basket attached to a 5 1/2" by 14" length of fabric. At the opposite end of the basket is a pocket filled it with poly pellets for weight. I also added a little pin cushion stuffed with polyfil.
